Finish Strong

decemberWow, can you believe it’s December already? It seems like just yesterday we were ringing in the New Year. The whole year was ahead of us and I don’t know about you, but I was ready for the amazing opportunities ahead. Before we head into 2017, let’s take time this month to reflect on the memorable moments of 2016 and get ready for what is in store for us in the coming year.

Celebrate and finish strong, sounds like a great plan…Join me!


Take time to clean up your desktop, declutter your file folders and purge your email. Start strong in the New Year by having a clean workspace and new files ready for your projects.

Update your calendar

Have you planned out your standard meetings and appointments? What priorities are identified for the 1st quarter? Schedule necessary meetings with clients, prospects and colleagues so dates are confirmed before the holidays.

Complete pending projects

Try to nice, not naughty to yourself and check off the unfinished projects before the end of the year! Take time now to wrap them up now and start 2017 strong!

Look ahead

Get a jumpstart on the New Year plans by purposely blocking out time on the calendar to actually work on projects/programs/papers. Someone once said to me “If it’s not on your calendar, it doesn’t exist”.

Set goals

Have you decided where you want to grow personally and professionally in 2017? Set intentions by writing down goals and the incremental steps that will move you toward success in the New Year. Share your goals with a friend or colleague to help you stay accountable.

Have fun

The holiday season is a great time to be with loved ones, to reminisce, and to give to others. Reflect and rejoice over the accomplishments of the year. Share funny moments with friends and colleagues as you look back over the past year. Give selflessly to others so they too experience Joy.
